Does the Code of Conduct Apply to Me?

The UC Riverside Health Code of Conduct applies to all health system employees and students. For purposes of the UC Riverside Health Code of Conduct, the term "employees and students" refers to all responsible parties who are involved in either the direct provision of patient care services, or with providing staff, business, administrative, or patient care support services on campus, at medical centers and clinics, and the School of Medicine. If you are an employee or student of UC Riverside Health, you are responsible for knowing the Code of Conduct and following it. UC Riverside Health recognizes and endorses the University of California Statement of Ethical Values and University of California Standards of Ethical Conduct.

On February 8, 2006, President Bush signed the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (DRA) into law. The DRA is legislation addressing deficit reductions ranging from education to housing and Medicare to Medicaid. The University of California's policies include specific details regarding procedures for detecting and preventing fraud, waste, and abuse. The policies incorporate requirements under State of California laws. The UC Health Sciences Clinical Enterprise Compliance Code of Conduct (the Code) has been updated with DRA information and includes a section covering the laws described above, the rights of employees to be protected as whistleblowers, and UC's policies and procedures for detecting fraud, waste, and abuse.

You are also responsible for following all federal and state laws, regulations, policies and procedures that apply to your area of work. Failure to do so could result in you being subject to corrective action and/or disciplinary measures.
